This is how 2 referees rated Stephen:
I have several years experience teaching piano and music theory to students of all ages and abilities. I achieved a Licentiateship of the Royal Schools of Music (LRSM) in Piano Performance and I received an MA in Music from the University of Cambridge. I am currently studying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Instrumental Performance at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, studying piano with Mikhail Kazekevich and Victor Sangiorgio.
In my years playing piano I have given many public performances as both a soloist and an accompanist and I have won piano performance classes at music festivals in Birmingham, Lichfield, Leamington Spa, Dudley and Northfield. I was also awarded an exhibition for my performances in my first year undergraduate exams at the University of Cambridge.
I continue to teach piano and music theory as well as performing as an accompanist for concerts, rehearsals, competitions and examinations around the West Midlands.
I have 5+ years of teaching experience and I have taught classical, jazz and pop piano with experience of preparing my students for ABRSM and Trinity College London music exams, including the ABRSM Jazz Piano exams. I have a very high success rate for all my pupils entered into music examinations, including two marks of 99 out of 100 for two of my music theory students and a mark of 140 out of 150 for one of my Grade 6 piano students.
In addition to my private tuition, I also teach piano at a school in Coventry, where I frequently accompany many of the students for concerts, competitions and examinations.
Working with children and adults is something I enjoy immensely and take great pride in and my aim is to provide a friendly and supportive environment of learning tailored to the student's abilities. From a young age I was given great opportunities to develop my musical abilities through participation in concerts, competitions and extra-curricular music clubs at school and these were things that I very much enjoyed. I believe passionately that such activities and opportunities for performance are essential for any student’s development.
My piano teachers were a great inspiration to me through their love of music and dedication to teaching. My hope is that I may be an inspiration to the next generation of musicians myself, through my professionalism, ability and courteous and respectful manner.
